The Importance of Supply Chain Event Management
In a recent entry, we discussed strategies and solutions for managing a production network and how such management serves as something of an aircraft control tower where companies can most effectively avoid bottlenecks, production stoppages, and ensure cost-efficient production strategies across what are often expansive networks - many of which are in new and emerging markets with varied and unique production challenges. And much like working in a control tower, ...
Right Place, Right Time: The Importance of Order-Slotting Solutions
A place for everything and everything in its place. It’s an old proverb commonly thought to be coined by Benjamin Franklin in the mid 1700’s, and while it’s relegated to something of a cliche in today’s world, it’s just as pertinent as ever for those in the manufacturing and supply industry. As the supply chain continues to globalize ...
Technology for supply chain management
Our secret: Real-time Planning through "In-Memory Techology". Faster data access and adaptation. All relevant information for the planning process is packaged and saved “in memory”. This allows to access and adapt data much faster and more efficiently than traditional technologies.

Sales & Operations Planning with MRP Integration
Why isn’t there software capable of bringing sales planning, market inventories and production capacities together?
Our software package would also be able to take into account medium and long term volume forecasts, and supplier information in order to balance capacities and needs across various levels. Flexis sales planning goes even as far as taking into account parts demand forecasts and delivery network capacities in order to formulate the ideal plan. This creates a high level of planning security and forecasting accuracy...

Our Solutions Speak for Themselves
With flexis Demand Capacity Planning we were able to improve our ability to gain a quick overview of series and parts. This made it a lot easier to secure implementation scenarios and target delivery dates, and also to increase reliability of planning in these areas. The time saved […] is substantial.
The optimized production control system using flexis Balancing and flexis Sequencing contributes to increased productivity in the Audi plant in Ingolstadt. Audi AG in Ingolstadt was able to reduce its operating costs significantly. The scheduled color changeovers were reduced by more than 90 per cent as a result of using flexis Balancing and flexis Sequencing. […] The investment was amortized in just over 4 months.
Together with flexis, we executed a very successful upgrade project for our DAF sequencing applications. Remarkable was how well the flexis team understands our business, enabling smart solutions and in-time project delivery. The project resulted in a new system with flexible scheduling capabilities and modern user interfacing, helping DAF to realize significant savings.
flexis JMS is helping us optimizing our order to delivery processes, from customer order management to production planning and shipping of orders. The central element is the significant increase of the transparency regarding the current status in our production progress, the availability of products and of all of our production resources. This overview of the current situation can be retrieved quickly and reliable at any time. JMS is helping us to […].
With the introduction of flexis Monitoring we are now able to detect part shortages earlier in the near term horizon. This in turn enables us to start the escalation process to avoid missing parts earlier and to prevent and reduce turbulences and costly retrofitting work in the assembly process.
With flexis Sequencing we have a flexible and reliable planning tool on hand that optimizes our high variant axle production significantly. The switch from push to pull principle was made possible due to the smooth implementation which is reflected in a significant reduction of inventories. flexis has fulfilled our expectations fully. The implementation meets exactly our plant specific requirements […].
With the launch of flexis complex planning tasks can now be simulated and implemented in a very short period to time. High transparency and early detection of constraint violations pay off in form of precise expressiveness of possible delivery scenarios. Defined constraints -technical capacities - are stored in the master data. […].
Opel/Vauxhall has a made a breakthrough in managing its vehicle orders and forecasting in real time together with material availability and logistics, thanks in parts to systems implemented by software-provider flexis.
